Over all a very high quality, straightforward tow system. Easy to deploy and reload while on the water - however I recommend stashing the deployed line in your PFD after towing until you can raft-up and be supported by your partner. Reloading is definitely a two handed operation. I'm also a bit concerned with the potential durability of the plastic hook. I plan to replace it with a wire gate climbing carabiner. Don't get me wrong this is a good piece of gear.

The tow system worked great. It was easy to deploy.
I like the tow line. I worried about the plastic carbiner. While it worked fine, I am afraid it may break. Otherwise I love the product.

Good Quality, Compact and Light
This tow line is compact and comes in a case that drains well and easily straps to your kayak.
